Asking for advice / help with a Disc

9 posts in this topic

hi guys

 

First of all sorry for my english, this is not my native language.

 

Always read the forums and guides but it's the first time I write, and I do for help because I feel like I'm underperforming in relation to a healer of my level.

 

I'm in a raid casual weekends and we are starting to do heroic (I'm almost a regular pug), so far we do well 2 fights, Inmersus and Norushen, but have killed up Iron Juggernaut, but very fair or even in enrage.

 

My colleagues are all very good players and I feel I am no match for him, so I'm here asking for help from you.

 

My Armory:

MOD EDIT (english): http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/quelthalas/Epoxi/advanced

 

My Logs:

(sorry I have few records)

 

 
 
 
 

I am a regular at the Atonement healing, with a little Binding Heal, I always keep PoM on the tank and I try to put as many shields I can in 4 seg when the meta gem proc.

 

I have some issues with mana, especially in The Fallen Protectors and near the end of the fight usually sad.png

 

Any advice or comments would be very welcome because I really love the priest and I want to play with him 100%.

 

Thanks for your time.

Hi Epoxi

 

I'm not really a high skilled disci healer but I've reviewed your char and the logs of The Fallen Protectors and a few things strikes me:

  1. You should consider more mastery! (especially for your extensive use of PW:Shield)
  2. Your talent and glyphe setup is maybe not optimal! 
    Divine star might be more useful than Cascade (depends on raid position).
    And I would prefere glyphe "Binding Heal" instead of "Inner Fire".

Your spirit value is quite high so i'm wondering about your mana issues.

I hope that someone can give any advices on this.

 

Best

I think you have too much spirit... I understand protectors can be a mana intensive fight, but even so.  Try to use Spirit Shell more often, I try to watch a timer for Catastrophy and I'm able to spirit shell every other one.  I also do it during the girl's Desperate Measures.  Try to get 4 casts of Prayer of Healing every time you use Spirit Shell.

 

Iron Juggernaught: Wow, you casted power word: shield a LOT!  And almost never used attonement healing. 

 

If you are having mana issues in general, you might try using Power Word: Solace every time it's off cooldown in every situation unless you're doing Spirit Shell.  Because to be honest, if you're not doing that, you should probably be using Mind Bender anyway.

 

Also, Glyph of Inner Fire is crap.  Use Inner Sanctum instead.

 

In general I recommend not using halo.  Try Cascade or Divine Star instead.  Cascade can be used during your Legendary Metagem procs, or as a raid-wide attack hits.

Looks like you are casting shadow word pain a decent amount that would be one reason you seem to have a mana issue. Cut back on its use, and use it just for procing the twisted fate talent when you aren't able to atonement for a set period of time.

 

If you are not using power word solace on cd then you will be better off using mind bender.

 

Agree with brutal about halo, the only fight its even worth using it for is Immersues just cuz it full heals the blobs. Divine star for stack'd fights, cascade for heavily spread fights.

 

A trick to cap out spirit shell easily is to use inner focus + arch angles when you spirit shell, that combo alone usually caps one group then I switch to the other groups. Im not very familiar with warcraft logs so wasn't sure how to check to see if you were doing this at all.

 

can try and give more once i figure out what all warcraft logs will show, so used to worldoflogs.

First of all thanks for helping me and for your advice, LobbyBoy, Brutal and Omnae.

1) Mastery? I do not feel much better every time I get mastery, back to my usual level of critic and improve my healing.

2) I usually change a lot, but it depends on the fight actually.

 

Yes, I am working to lower the amount of spirit.

In Protectors i cast Mass Dispel 9 times and 17 times purify, and cast 35 times "Power Word: Pain" has to be cause of the problem of mana.

 

You're right with "Spirit Shell" I have to stop being overprotective of this spell and use it more.

 

I use "Power Word: Solace" but I really do not use much as it should, Norushen is where I had no mana problems and where I cast it more times.

 

I'll try to use more Cascade, but I feel that is slower than Halo for some occasions. In Galakras I use Divine Star because I am in charge of healing the goblins of the door, climb the tower and in the final stage because we are stack.

 

Big surprise that the glyph, had not realized existed. I'm already using.

You're right with the "Power Word: Pain" and had not realized that, trying to help with the damage I did not realize that almost consumes mana as a shield. 

 

I will try to use "Power Word: Solace" on CD.

 

Again, Cascade, I will try in many more fights.

 

I have a macro for Inner Focus + Archangel + spirit shell, then I cast PoH 4 times, 1 cast of PoH by selecting someone from group 1 and other by selecting someone from group 2 and then group 1 …

 

I'll try to learn how to use World of Logs, but I saw more linked to a guild and I do not have one, as I said I'm a pug xD 

 

 

What trinket think is better?

- Dysmorphic Samophlange of Discontinuity

or
- Nazgrim's Burnished Insignia
or
- Thok's Acid-Grooved Tooth

 

I have Prismatic Prison of Pride.

 

This weekend I hope to upload a log in World Of Logs, and I will try to put in practice all the tips you gave me.

Erm, the only fight you should be using mass dispell on is Immersius and maybe Thok.  You should only be using single target dispels on Protectors. 

 

As for trinkets, (this is my own opinion) the ONLY trinkets worth using are the Samophlange and Prismatic Prison of Pride.  The other two trinkets are just BAD for disc.

 

"I have a macro for Inner Focus + Archangel + spirit shell, then I cast PoH 4 times, 1 cast of PoH by selecting someone from group 1 and other by selecting someone from group 2 and then group 1 …"

Yes this is exactly what you should be doing.  And yeah you should be looking for any excuse to cast that spell, it's throughput is FANTASTIC.

Realizing that you need to increase the usage of some of your abilities is very important.  If you are not already doing so, find a way of tracking them better so you can use them on CD. 

 

Fallen Protectors:

For as much uptime as you have for Evangelism, 75%, you only have a 9% uptime on AA.  Add this to your CD tracking and keep it on CD as much as possible.  Shoot for an uptime above 50%.  Reducing your SW:P to help your mana MIGHT cause a dip in your ToF uptime.  Make sure you don't let this slip.  Taking Divine Star will help cover most of it, so make sure you are facing the right direction for adds and friendlies.  With the extra GCDs you'll have w/o the SW:P, use them to increase your ToF with Atonement.  Shoot for a 60% uptime of ToF or better on this fight.

 

Side note, I watched your Combat Replay.  I want to make sure that when you pop Hero in the beginning that your tanks are keeping the three bosses w/i cleave range for everyone.  Yea, He will be bouncing around but when he comes back... make sure that he returns to the cleave radius.  It will reduce your kill time which will also help your mana.

 

Edit: Got interrupted, will throw in anything else I see that might possible help on the other fights later.

Thank you a lot Gwenymph!

 

This is the new log, we could not do all 3 days so we had time only for the first 3:

 

http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/GZrVQntTvx2y4Ndw

 

I could not get my password Worldoflogs.com sad.png

 

 

Except Immerseus, I had no mana problems, but this was the first fight I did from the diminution of spirit.

 

I improved the use of SS, I use more often though that could have been better

 

I reduced much SW: P and only use it to renew ToF.

 

I forget to change Halo for DS after Immerseus sad.png

Protectors you had 93% uptime of PoM and over 37% uptime of AA.  Great improvement and wish I wouldve looked at the newer logs before I posted this morning. haha.  I was going off of Icon instead of trying to read the Spanish.  What did end up happening though is you lost more than half of your uptime on ToF from 50%+ to 23%.  So still try and use Atonement and DS next time to get back to where you were with its uptime.   From a pure hps point of view you increased your output over 40k and the fight duration was very similar.  Way to go.

 

On Norushen you didnt use SS at all.  This is a great fight to use it and IF on CD.  Definitely make that change going forward

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.

We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      I am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.
    • By SweHillbilly
      Hiya!
      Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.
       
      Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.
       
      I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.
